QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019

By
Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

Hi Everyone!  I feel so fortunate that I receive feedback from 'Quotes from
the Sandbox' ---- I receive favorite quotes from others.  Recently I received
the following and when checking noticed the poem/quote is controversial
as to the author.  Supposedly, it was written by Wilfred Grindle Conary
before 1928, however others in the 1930's and 1940's lay claim to it.   Has a
meaningful message:

                                                   "The CLOCK of LIFE"
                                        The Clock of Life is wound but once,
                                        And no man has the power,
                                        To tell just when the hands will stop,
                                        At late or early hour.                              
                                               Now is the  only time you own,
                                               Live;  Love;  Toil with a will,
                                               Place no Faith in Time,
                                               For the Clock may soon be still."
                                                                   ~~~~~~~

"The bad news is time flies.  
The good news is you're the pilot."                                           ~Michael  Altshuler

"The mind is like a clock that is constantly running down and must be wound
up daily with good thoughts."                                                      ~Fulton J. Sheen

"The clock always ticks.  There are times you don't hear it, and there are
times that you do."                                                              ~David Levithan

"The clock strikes off the hollow half-hours of all the life that is left to you,
one by one."                                                                              ~Emily Bronte

"The clock never stops, never stops, never waits.
  We're growing old.  It's getting late."                                              ~Ben Folds

"Ten million years will  not put a strain on the clock of eternity."
                                                                                                    ~Leonard Ravenhill

"People often complain about lack of time when the lack of direction
is the real problem."                                                                         ~Zig Ziglar

"Time is free, but it's priceless.  You can't own it, but you can use it.
  You can't keep it, but you can spend it.  Once you've lost it you can never
  get it back."                                                                               ~Harvey MacKay


"Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start
from now and make a brand new ending."                                ~Carl Bard

"The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine."
                                                                                                          ~Buddha

Jane,

With the time change, these are timely, especially the last four for me.

Hi  Bob Crane,  when I think back I can see my waste of time in a lack of direction and not focusing on  my, a better,  daily routine.  And main thing is, you can not get that time back but, - you can learn from it.
Hey, our Green Bay Packers lost today ---- :(

Jane I have been away from the platform but it is always nice to pop into your Sand Box posts.... on a side note did you ever fix your Voice Mail? Now to focus on one of the quotes that resonated with me:

Hi Mr. James Dray,I also like the Harvey quote;  it is very clear:  TIME:  Free, Priceless, Use, Spend, Lose,.......  It just covered the importance of 'Time' in  4 short sentences.  Great quote.  Hope you are having a wonderful Monday, James.

Hi Wayne Martin,   that particular quote sort of reminds me of the poem by William Ernest Henley, INVICTUS:
                    'IAM THE MASTER OF MY FATE:
                     I AM THE CAPTAIN OF MY SOUL.'

Yes, Candice A. Donofrio, you are so right;  the problem is you think you 'have the time.'   Hey, how is life going your way. I love that you are in my life.

Hi Brian England , thank you for the 'heads up.'  I have found that comments are coming to me from outside ActiveRain and often...many times I do not have names or feel free to give those name out.  But I will make sure to give credit when possible, when due.  And thank you, beautiful Brian.  You have a very loving soul.

"Time is free, but it's priceless.  You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it.  Once you've lost it you can never get it back."    I like that one, Jane!
